I can think of very few writers who can pull off such a combination of high drama, suspense, and breathtaking lyricism. What begins as an intimate and unusual love story somehow escalates into a gripping tale of international intrigue without a whiff of melodrama (not a whiff!). It is at once wild and utterly believable, with every motive and emotion rooted in natural, candid, absorbing human detail.

I could not put the thing down. I finished it in two days. I felt anxious when I had to be away from it. I wanted to read slowly and savor it, but I could not stop turning the pages! Every reader should suffer such a plight.

We are lucky that this book exists. Don't miss it.
